IGN Writes 'Feast your eyes on the stunning visual upgrades to two of the most beloved games of all time.'
Truly, truly breathtaking! Two of the best games ever... that art direction is inspirational.
Anyone know the name of the song? Also, this is a day 1 buy for me! I cant wait!
The song is called 'ICO - You Were There' and is sung by Steven Geraghty. It's the end credit song for Ico and is on the Ico soundtrack 'Melody in the Mist'. Great song... really fits the mood of the game.
Bubbles to you :D Thank you!
Um I was expecting more from the upgrade.
i think ico looks significantly better. some of soc looks better, but overall it looks relatively the same, just sharper... still, that little movie took me back a bit... will definitely get this
Well, it's not quite a night and day difference. But I'll still be buying it because I never played Ico when I had my ps2, and SotC will be worth playing through again.
Biggest, and IMO, more important update, is the frame rate.
Yeah, the framerate in the original SotC was terrible.
Ico to me looks more of an upgrade than shadow of the colossus does. Ico does look more sharp and vibrant in colors. Edit. Okay never mind, I saw the last piece the part of the vid and they both look very good on the upgrade.
Never got to play ICO, so it will be good to give it a go. SotC is the main reason why I am buying this... its going to be a blast to go back and play
Awesome. Can't wait. Cue the haters to tell us why we're suckers for buying HD remasters of classic games.
The old PS2 version of SOtC is still king in my book use of bloom is more aggressive and just has an overall grittier appearance [probably due to lack of AA and low res textures...lol]. ICO on the other hand is like night and day, just breathtaking. I have both of these on PS2, but none the less this is still a day one purchase. Well done Team ICO, now please just give us a release date for The Last Guardian.
I somehow missed these games on the PS2 and was actually thinking about picking up ICO recently. I guess I will be buying the PS3 HD collection instead.
Diggin the new AA. Looks a lot smoother on the eyes.
